She Hate Me, a review by Rich


She Hate Me



When biotech exec Jack (Anthony Mackie, 8 Mile) blows the whistle on his greedy drug-conglomerate bosses (Woody Harrelson, Natural Born Killers and Ellen Barkin, Sea of Love) over an insider-trading scandal, he gets more than he bargained for. Once this playa is played, he finds himself hitting rock bottom when an old flame, Fatina (Kerry Washington, Save the Last Dance) blows back into his life with the ultimate job offer: father her child, no strings attached. Teaming up to turn the tables on corporate culture, he sets up shop as a stud-for-hire at 10 G's a pop for a bevy of wealthy lesbians. When Jack delivers the goods, even his ex's glamazon gal pals can't resist his considerable...charms. Torn between love and money, Jack chases his American Dream all the way to the bank. But things heat up when Jack impregnates the Mafia daughter (Monica Bellucci, The Matrix Reloaded) of a notorious boss (John Turturro, Secret Window), triggering the FBI to expose Jack's cash-cow scheme.

A Spike Lee film again about minorities (lesbians), but ended up more like a male fantasy!
It is a bizarre mix of sexual politics and big business, and at times you have to wonder whether a message is trying to come through the film in subliminal form. After half an hour or so, as the lead finds a new occupation in life having sex with beautiful lesbians to impregnate them (at times quite graphic) for $10k a time, it feels a bit pervy. Throw in cartoon sperm (not literally), an artsy feel at times, and certainly a few erotic scenes. Then near the end it all gets a bit strange and emotional as he is involved in a menage-a-trois with the main lesbian couple, and Dad to the 2 kids they have had from his seed.
It must be humiliating for a real lesbian if they saw this film, as it basically says that a handsome man with big 'equipment' would immediately make them go like a train and realise what they are missing! And the ending scenes are truly cringe-worthy.
Saying all of the above, it was still watchable in an odd way, and I especially recommend this to Tom for his lesbian marathon.

The Land That Time Forgot, a review by Rich


Edgar Rice Burroughs' The Land That Time Forgot





I assume an intentional B movie style, the 'creatures' are hysterically poor, the budget must have been bottom drawer, the acting is a mixture of ham and cheese, and the target audience clearly circa 10 year old boys with vivid imaginations.
If this was made seriously then it misses the mark by a massive mile, and I could list here forever the faults of the film such as awful effects, a friendly bunch of nazi inhabitants, and woeful adaptation.etc etc etc
However I prefer to treat this as a fun and tongue in cheek cheapie offering, that left me with a smile on my face through it's sheer awfulness.

A good episode. Seems like they already knew that they were cancelled when producing the episode, or they really just like to make fun of themselves. This episode jokes that the series is unsuccessful because it is not like the movie. So this episode is more like the movie, just with some crazy stuff going on outside of the store.
